I am the Law

I am the Rebel

I resent the Rebel

I resent the Law

 

The Law is hard The Law is hard

But it is the Law But it is the Law

 

There is tension

The Law tightens

I am the oppressor

I am the oppressed

 

The Law is hard The Law is Hard

But it is the Law But it is the Law

 

There is anger

There is hate

I slip up

I am blamed

The Rebel wants freedom

The Law wants power

Power is good

Freedom is good

 

The Law is hard The Law is hard

But it is the Law But it is the Law

 

The Law kills us

The Rebel steals from us

I organize

I suppress

Uprising

Easy battle

Not so easy

 

Bloodshed Bloodshed

 

The Law is hard

The Law is wrong

 

War War

 

Long years

Dead fathers

Dead brothers

Dead sons

Innocent dead

Condemned dead

 

Final battle Final Battle

 

The Rebel fights

The Law fights

I fall

I conquer

 

The Law is hard The Law is hard

But the Law has fallen But the Law has fallen
